What People Are Saying...

"If you're a head coach of a program, I hope you will take the time to show everybody in your program the DVD - from Varsity to JV to the freshmen team. If you have young assistant coaches, make sure you watch it together and talk about how to discuss the issue of steroids with your athletes. If we're not willing to have the conversation, we're not going to fix the problem."
Peter Roby, Athletic Director, Northeastern University

Steroids: True Stories Hosted by Curt Schilling forum at The Boston Police Academy

Words Can Work founder Jeanne Blake presented Steroids: True Stories Hosted by Curt Schilling and Words Can Work: When Talking About Steroids to Boston police recruits.

"The Boston Police Academy prides itself in providing a challenging and comprehensive training environment to all Recruit Officers. Our commitment is to skill-based training with real-life and practical knowledge and information that will benefit not only the 'professional interest but the human interest', keeping perspective of our ever - evolving role and responsibilities as police officers. Recruit Class #44-06, was fortunate to have Steroids: True Stories Hosted by Curt Schilling and Words Can Work: When Talking About Steroids presented to them. The presentation and panel discussion proved to be a very relevant topic for the times and a very informative and useful piece of awareness training that all Recruits will benefit from and make use of in their work as Police Officers. We are committed to prevention, education, and awareness. With the information received and knowledge gained, this class of future Police Officers is now equipped with another component of practical, realistic, useful and preventive information for anyone that may cross their path. The feedback received from Recruits was overwhelmingly positive - the Boston Police Academy is proud to have been part of such a valuable learning opportunity."
Deputy Superintendent Gladys R. Aquino Gaines, Commander, Training and Education Division, Boston Police Department

"If you're a head coach of a program, I hope you will take the time to show everybody in your program the DVD - from Varsity to JV to the freshmen team. If you have young assistant coaches, make sure you watch it together and talk about how to discuss the issue of steroids with your athletes. And, quite frankly, ask yourselves, 'Is there anyone in our program right now that we might suspect is abusing steroids? Has their appearance changed that much? Are they starting breaking out in acne in ways like we haven't seen before? Are you hearing any rumors?' If we're not willing to have the conversation, we're not going to fix the problem."
Peter Roby, Director, Center for the Study of Sport in Society, Northeastern University
